  • This relatively new memorial is impressive both in terms of scale and design with superb detailing. Few people seem to visit it though as it is located in a slightly out of the way location at the Nor...  more »

  • A poignant reminder of all the brave young airmen who lost their lives in WW2.
  • Amazing memorial to the thousands of boys and men who have their all so we might live free
  • Thought provoking memorial to the thousands of young men who gave their lives to help win the war and save the world from Nazi tyranny. I lived for 4 years in Germany - and perhaps because of this - I also thought deeply of the terror and tragedy suffered by civilians in the bombed cities. Marcel Bühner - you are a rare example of a modern day German - unlike the many friends and colleagues I met over their, you are blinkered and lacking historical perspective.
  • What to say when you feel this amount of respect toward the woman and the man of RAF during the WWII. Magnificent.
  • I was field with great pride in being a Englishman. All the brave men that flew them raids to protect us from evil got the true recognition they deserve.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
